Welcome to HP Forums and Thanks for the post.
I understand that you are looking to remove the write protect on your pen drive.
Not to worry, I will be glad to assist you.
Have you tried the pen drive on any other computer?
Recommend you to backup the data on the pen drive and format the pen drive in Fat32 format.
Connect the pen drive to your computer.
Open Windows explorer.
Right-click on the pen drive and format the pen drive in Fat32.
Let me know how it goes.
